US bucks and Kyat-Cat. As I was puzzled about the financial crisis before leaving for Myanmar, I had a last-minute anxiety in search of a crunchy $13. So, I'll explain it to you here, don't worry about the inches. Yes, for a while in Myanmar you could only use US dollars because your own currency wasn't valuable enough, but it's a little easier now.
They' re spending Kyats, not dollar, by the way. You all seem to boost you 5000kyat per transaction, and for this this reason you may want to come to the land with US bucks to swap them at a better rate. Sure. The best installment I found was at the Yangon airfield before I left claim.
It' s a good idea to have a small amount of money with you to cover foreigners' taxes without being taken for a ride (see the history here), but it's not obligatory here either, and if you don't have it, you'll be well. In the Burmese Kyat, I could afford anything, anywhere, in the Burmese currency, which included all shelter, meals and transportation.
Indeed, they have chosen me to buy them in national currency. There are a few regulations if you choose to keep a few bucks with you or take them with you: Has to be crunchy and look pretty new, no lettering, no teardrops or any use.
Higher grades (50, 100) give you a higher currency quote than the lower ones. Another thing to remember: You can't buy Burmese Kyat outside Myanmar before you go, so you can't trade it in when you are out! If you don't want to keep it as a gift, trade all your cash back before you go or buy it all.
So how much do I need? Myanmar was more pricey than other Southeast Asia nations like Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia. When you stick with topical nutrition, and mostly you don't have a option, then it is reasonably rated, try and buy from the market if you can.
